Responses to the Oct. 1 question:
Do you believe Oscar Pistorius’ fatal shooting of his girlfriend was accidental or intentional?

Cell phone is key to Oscar Pistorius case
I say the shooting was intentional! He is as guilty as O.J. Simpson. The real question is: was that poor girl trying to get out of his house because she was being abused by a monster? Was she using her cell phone in the bathroom? The key to this is if she had her phone in the bathroom. I believe he was furious that she was calling someone else on Valentine’s Day.

Oscar Pistorius meant to shoot girlfriend
I do believe the shooting was intentional. I caught the trial on BBC and after watching him, I am sure Oscar Pistorius is guilty of intentionally shooting his girlfriend.

Oscar Pistorius got away with murder
I believe Oscar Pistorius is guilty of murder. All he had to do was knock on the door and call police. Who sleeps with a gun under his pillow? He got away with murder because of who he is. If I were on a jury, I would have found him guilty. But, there’s no jury in South Africa; it was up to the judge.

Ticketed twice from cameras in Nassau County
I have already gotten two traffic tickets for this year from red light cameras and school zone cameras. I wonder how many more traffic tickets will be issued for people. The cameras seem to be all over Nassau County.

Red light cameras are not working correctly
With these red light cameras, I have seen people go through at 50 miles per hour and the cameras don’t flash; yet, I have also seen people go through at 28 miles per hour and get a summons that says they were going 44 miles per hour. I think people receiving these tickets should be exempt until the cameras are calibrated correctly.

Question of the week:
Should drivers be told where speed zone cameras are
located in public school districts?
